Publication date: Available online 21 July 2018Source: Journal of Anxiety DisordersAuthor(s): Natasha Benfer, Joseph R. Bardeen, Ian Cero, Lindsay B. Kramer, Sarah E. Whiteman, Travis A. Rogers, Madison W. Silverstein, Frank W. WeathersAbstractEvidence suggests that posttraumatic stress (PTS) disorder (PTSD) symptom presentations may vary as a function of index trauma type. Network analysis was employed in the present study to examine differences in PTS symptom centrality (i.e., the relative influence of a symptom on the network), and PTS symptom associations across three trauma types: motor vehicle accident (MVA), sexual ...

ConclusionTo our knowledge, this was the first study to examine the relationship between objective sleep and fear-potentiated startle performance in veterans with PTSD. Study methods were well tolerated by participants, supporting feasibility of the experimental design. Results indicated REM sleep was associated with both initial safety learning and subsequent safety recall. Taken together with previous studies in healthy controls, these preliminary results provide additional evidence suggesting REM sleep could play a mechanistic role in the maintenance of PTSD and thus identify a modifiable biological process to target in...

Authors: Weiss EM, Parson W, Niederstätter H, Marksteiner J, Lampe A Abstract Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental disorder following a severe traumatic experience and is characterized by high rates of comorbidity with related psychiatric disorders. However, even for individuals experiencing the same trauma, there is considerable inter-individual variability in the risk of PTSD, and this is largely thought to be determined by biological processes, such as genetic predisposition and epigenetic mechanism. In this review we will summarize recent research on genetics of PTSD, primarily focusing on can...

A large body of research documents the link between Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and the course of Substance Use Disorders (SUD). Similar relationships have been reported between Childhood Trauma (CT) and the course of illness in patients with SUD even in the absence of PTSD, but few studies have examined differential effects of PTSD and CT (independent of PTSD) in this population.We used the International Diagnostic Checklist (IDCL) and the Posttraumatic Diagnostic Scale (PDS) to diagnose PTSD in a sample of patients with SUD (N  = 459).

Authors: Lee B, Lee H Abstract Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a trauma-induced psychiatric disease characterized by impaired hyperarousal, fear extermination, depression, anxiety, and amnesic symptoms that may include the release of monoamines in the dread circuit. Curcumin (CUR), a major diarylheptanoid and polyphenolic component of Curcuma longa, reportedly possesses several pharmacological features, including antidiabetic, antiatherosclerotic, anticancer, and neuropsychiatric actions. But the anxiolytic-like effects of CUR and its mechanism of action in PTSD are unclear. The current research measured so...

Conclusion: Pre-deployment resilience training was acceptable and feasible and resulted in lower post-deployment PTSD symptom scores in subgroups of older soldiers compared with controls. Strengths of the study included cluster randomization at the company level, use of iPod device to deliver the resilience intervention throughout the deployment cycle, and minimal disruption of pre-deployment training by using self-paced resilience training. Weaknesses included self-report app use, study personnel not able to contact soldiers during deployment, and in general a low level of PTSD symptom severity throughout the study. In fu...
